10:47 pm
in a park that is different. it's been there for a while and is so well put together thatthere's an actual waiting list to get inside. however there is a problem this is the sign to grove shafter park in west oakland this is unlike another park in the area which i shall attempt to explain to you in the next few minutes, first off according to the city of oakland there are count them 18 different code violations in the park nicknamed the village they are state, local and fire codes which all publicly posted. you just have to read past all the power to the people written on the notice nats: ambiance the park is located beneath where highway 24 and interstate 580 meet. if you're on the freeway a good point of reference is this market
10:48 pm
street san pablo ave exit sign the reference to the freeway will make sense shortlynats ambiance the park has an encampment which includes tents and lined up under one of the overpassesbut there are other things that make this encampment unique there are structures make out of wood and other materials; some have windows and doors . there is a kitchen where food can and is prepared including a pantry they have also tapped into the city water supply and there is a porta potty and a hand washing station all inside the park there is shower which has been constructed which has hot water, there is another feature i have never seen in any encampment, it has a spokesperson this is needa bee this encampment was started by an oakland residents both homeless and housed who have been most of us dealing with the impact of gentrification oakland since the 90's when it started coming over from san
10:49 pm
francisco to oakland and we have been engaged in the city for 20 years so my question was why take over this city park the city dosent own this park the county dosent own this property and from what both the county assessors and their supervisors told us two weeks ago and again a week ago is that their stumped because there is no parcel number for this land they have no idea who owns this land so based on the groups research this is the conclusion they reached this land is owned by nobody, so technically it's still indigious land which brings me back full circle to the freeway overpass, the freeway is state property caltrans and the land below it also caltrans property who, in turn, leased the land to the city of oaklandwhich might explains why there is no parcel i reached out to oakland parks and rec who inturn confirmed my finding, so basically the group who told me this is a protest and an encampment have to vacate the park in fact, they have already received a 72 hour notice to vacate or else the city will remove it for them including the kitchen and the clothing shop there will be more on this story as it west oakland roberts kron 4 news the city of oakland says, a 20 million bond was approved which will eventually fund housing for
